Fire Ecology in Scandinavian Forests: Parallels to Western North America
The fire ecology of Scandinavian forests and its management implications have many parallels to forests of the American West. As in the United States, the policy of fire exclusion has yielded to a broader understanding of fire ecology, and both silviculture and prescribed fire are being used in Scandinavia to restore fire-dependent forests. These observations were made during the Society of American Foresters tour of Norway and Sweden in May 1998, which covered forest ecology, management, and utilization, as well as the long history of human use of forests.
